Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

Nobody wanna see us together
Nobody thought that we'd last forever

Things between us don't get better (better)
Men steady coming after you (you)
Women steady coming after me (me)
Seems like er'body wanna go for self and
Don't wanna respect boundary
Telling you all those lies (oh, ooh)
Just to get on your side (side)
But I must admit there was a couple
Secrets I held inside (inside)

To always apologize ('gize)
And I'ma have you first
Always in my heart to keep you satisfied (satisfied)

Fight for our right to love, yeah (right to love, yeah)
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you)

You got every right to wanna leave (wanna leave)
You got every right to wanna go (wanna go)
You got every right to hit the road (hit the road)
And never talk to me no more (me no more)
You don't even have to call (have to call)
Even check for me at all (me at all)
Because the way I've been acting lately (I've been acting)
Has been off the wall (off the wall)
Especially towards you (towards you)
Putting girls before you (before you)
And they watching everything I've been doing
Just to hurt you (hurt you)
Most of it just ain't true (ain't true)
And they won't show you (show you)
How much of a queen you are to me
And why I love you, baby

Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you, babe)
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter, no ('cause I got you, babe)

'Cause we gon' fight, oh yes, we gon' fight (we gon' fight)

    This song is great but i think it speaks of how a guy is working hard for his love for the chick. everybody is against them but yet he still puts everythin on the line for her. Nothing matters to him just her. Even though he's had mistakes he still know shes the one for him. no matter waht adversaries they go through it will make them stronger. Even if people put crazy ideas into their heads they will still maintain their love!!! They have each other which is enough for eachother.

    This song is so pretty but it's also kind of sad to me because of how sweet it is. He doesn't care about what other people think of their relationship, and that's what's so awesome

    Instead of "Nobody wanna see us together Nobody thought we'd last forever I feel I'm hopin' and prayin' Things between us gon' get better"

    Is it not "Nobody wanna see us together Nobody thought we'd last forever I feel I'm hopin' and prayin' Things between us WON' get better" As in everyone else is hoping it won't get better between them so they'll break up?

Ave Grave
Thee More Shallows
So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
